The Most Ambitious Crossover since Infinity War? Will the Programme for Government flop at the box office, or take home an Oscar?

From debating chamber to the student bar it’s a rare occasion that James and I are not debating and evaluating various governments Ireland has seen since her incarnation as a free state in 1921. Its interesting to see the rural Kerry man’s opinion juxtaposed to that of an urban south dub, and naturally we don’t always see eye to eye over what would be considered “Pressing Issues” in society. The same could be said for the programme for government, where the viewpoints of Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and the Green Party differ on many issues, including the agricultural industry and decentralisation of Dublin. In this article James and I will attempt to explain one of the most ambitious cross over since Marvel’s “Infinity War”. This Article is divided into two parts; In Part One, I explain some of the policies in the government programme, whilst in Part Two James gives his analysis from a rural perspective.  The question remains, will the Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and Green coalition flop at the box office, or will it take home an Oscar?

These are not isolated cases. Euroscepticism is no longer a taboo amongst European Youth. Rather, it is now marching on the streets, blocking migrant boats from reaching Europe and building makeshift border walls. As you can guess, this presents “somewhat” of a problem for future Integration into the European Union.

Born in 1950 in Clontarf, North Dublin, Kelly pursued a law degree at UCD and graduated with first class honours at King’s Inns. Rather than commencing his devilling to become a barrister, he became an administrative officer in the Civil Service and was allocated to the Department of Justice. Flying back and forth between Amsterdam and Brussels upon Ireland’s entrance into the EEC in 1973, Kelly excelled in administrative matters in European law.
